Wexford is a multi-cultural neighbourhood. Its diversity is celebrated on Lawrence Avenue, where an international array of food shops and restaurants can be found. This mix includes East and West Indian, Caribbean, African, Mediterranean, Greek and Italian businesses.
Maryvale is bordered on the north by Highway 401, on the east by an industrial corridor, and on the south by the Canadian Pacific railway line.
This small, family oriented neighbourhood revolves around the Maryvale Public School, located south of Ellesmere Road off Pharmacy Avenue. The Maryvale Junior YMCA is based at this school and Maryvale Park and Community Centre are adjacent to the school.
